The Nigeria Government had directed the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to ensure that every Nigerian is registered and issued with the Nigeria National ID Card.
There are National Identity Management Commission centers Nationwide where you can walk in and register to have their National ID Card issued. You will have to provide your credentials and some other sort of identity, then carry out your biometrics registration.
The National Identity card is a document that has your credentials that identify you as a citizen of Nigeria. It is usually plasticized and can be used and accepted globally to identify you as a citizen of Nigeria. The National Identity card is handy not only to identify yourself as a Nigerian, but it is accepted in all institutions in Nigeria upon registration like in banks, companies, government agencies, private organizations and so on.
